Start chatting with anyone in your organization

On any device, including desktop, securely send a message to anyone in the organization by simply searching for their name. Zinc chats have all the capabilities you'd expect in a consumer messaging app, but with the controls and security necessary for an enterprise messenger. In any conversation on the Zinc chat platform, you can:

  • take a picture or video or send one from your library
  • attach a document
  • dictate a message
  • share your location
  • view read receipts
  • start a phone call
  • view contact information


Keep conversations organized with powerful group messaging

Official, Ad Hoc and Hotline Groups keep communication focused and organized within your organization.

  • Official Groups are generated by company administrators and can be automatically synced with existing groups in Microsoft's Active Directory
  • Ad hoc groups can be created by any user at any time
  • Hotline Groups allow users to ask questions in any Zinc group, without having to be a member of the group

Create groups that help your teams be more efficient. Separate out teams, departments, regions, products, events, training, and more. By using a company messaging app that allows you to manage group membership and ensure only the employees who should be members of a specific group are, you effectively reduce information overload and drive immediate response times.

Share content without needing to leave the app

Zinc's team communication app is built to make communication seamless. Without ever leaving the app, create a conversation around a ServiceMax work order or send a picture of the job site to your manager, for example.

Zinc's various modes and integrations with your camera, photo library, GPS, cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive and Box, and workflow apps such as ServiceMax provide multiple ways to solve the task at hand, directly from your phone or mobile device.


Go hands-free by listening to incoming messages

Sometimes it's difficult to access the phone when finishing an install or driving to the next customer site. With Zinc’s “Hands Free” feature, stay constantly connected while driving safely or working through a troubleshooting call. Or simply stay available to a customer in front of you.

Once turned on, incoming messages are read out aloud and any responses are recorded and sent back to the recipient as a voice response. Get caught up on all messages after a full day of work by turning on the “Catch up” feature, which enables all unread messages to be read aloud.

3rd Party Messaging

Add external users to Zinc

Need to communicate with someone who is not part of the organization? No problem. Zinc's employee messaging app easily adds external people such as contractors or seasonal workers to conversations and messages using an email address. Most importantly, these individuals don’t need to be added to the organization, thereby restricting access to sensitive data or contact information.
